Sony also has been taking other hits to their bottom line, they took a 30million dollar (USD) hit due to the battery recalls.

That would be putting your money where your mouth is. We don't do that here. We just spout off about crap we have no clue about.

I got a feeling that if, and a BIG IF, Blu Ray takes the crown the PS3 could still come to be a golden ticket for them.

That would be wasting money. I would rather take a crap at the 800-900 bucks it will cost here in Denmark.

i know youre saying that it doesnt cost as much to produce their console, but you have to acknowledge that not pushing technology and using previous generation hardware (CPU/GPU) is just as risky as pushing new technologies. its a gamble as to whether or not ppl are willing to drop $200 on a system that you can obtain the same hardware for in a gamecube for $50. effectively, ppl are paying for the controller, and this is paying off for Nintendo.

Let's also not forget that Sony also has to pay more outside firms for R&D (IBM and NVIDIA), expenses they didn't have (or had much less of) for the PS2.

Seems like their "predictions" were wrong. Sony released their quater numbers and its only 5.3% lower then last years thanks to evilchris (TV division did very well) and the movies they released last year (Bond did rock).
